    Any reviewers able to give me help?

    How would you like to review things if you have no idea how to.

    describe how it feels / works
    list what you like or dislike about it and expand on why you like/dislike it
    add important pictures
    give it a rating

    something like that

    And should I just review some stuff I all ready have and then begin to email manufacturers and offer to review for them?

    its better to review first since they usually ask for a sample review

    Its an idea to start by reading lots of other reviews, try to work out what makes a good review, and more importantly what makes a bad review.

    Amazon is a classic place for badly written or completely off topic reviews. But there are also some real gems in there that show how a good review can be written. While these aren't professional reviews its a good starting place, to get your head around what makes a well written review.

    Then you can start having a go at producing your own sample reviews.

    If you're looking at doing this professionally then start looking into getting some qualifications as a journalist or similar.
